A few days after the presentation of the AMG GT in Black Series version, Mercedes-Benz updated the AMG GT range (coupe and roadster) by simplifying it slightly.
With 54 hp more
Until now, the AMG GT range has included the AMG GT 4.0 (476 hp), AMG GT S (522 hp), AMG GT C (557 hp) and AMG GT R (585 hp) versions, without counting the whole new AMG GT Black Series strong of 730 hp.
Exit the AMG GT 4.0 and the AMG GT S which are replaced by a single model, the new AMG GT which sees its power gain 54 hp for 530 hp, ie 8 hp more than the "old" GT S. The torque increases from 630 to 670 Nm… as on the old AMG GT S.
Performance is also improving as the Vmax goes from 304 to 312 km / h and the 0 to 100 km / h exercise is dispatched in 3.8 seconds.
The new entry-level Mercedes-AMG GT therefore progressed by 0.2 seconds and posted a time identical to that of the GT S.
Transmission is still to the rear wheels via the usual AMG Speedshift DCT 7G gearbox.
More standard equipment
The standard or optional equipment is also evolving since the rise in range and power of the AMG GT now allows access to equipment previously reserved for other models.
We note in particular that the AMG Ride Control (adaptive suspension), electronic locking rear differential or composite brakes with red calipers are now standard.
In addition, the lithium-ion battery (lighter and more punchy than a conventional battery) is also available, as is the "Race" driving mode.
Optionally, and in combination with the AMG Dynamic Plus, buyers will be able to access the steering rear axle.
The model will be available in coupe and roadster.
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT will hit dealer showrooms sometime in November.
The French pricing has not yet been communicated by the manufacturer but know that in Germany, the AMG GT coupe is sold from € 117,079.80 and € 130,679.80 for the roadster.
